Leah Moore was born in Northampton, England to Alan and Phyllis Moore on the 4th of February, 1978. In 1990, at the age of twelve, she moved to Liverpool, where she met her future husband, John Reppion, just four years later, in 1994. Ten years after that, in October 2004, the two of them were married.
Leah?s fascination with literature of all kinds led her to attend the University of Manchester, where she took a degree in Classics and English Literature. After that, her first published work was an 8-page story, ?King Solomon Pines,? with art by Sergio Aragones, in Tom Strong's Terrific Tales #5, in January 2003. This was soon followed by another 8-pager, ?Bad to the Bone,? drawn by Shawn McManus, in Tom Strong #19, in April 2003. After that, and with the encouragement of various people in the comics business, Leah and John Reppion co-write a proposal for a six-part series, which eventually became Wild Girl, with art by Shawn McManus and J. H. Williams III, published by Wildstorm Productions between November 2004 and April 2005.
Based on Wild Girl, the pair were offered the opportunity to write a new series, Albion, due to debut from Wildstorm in June 2005. This is nothing short of a renaissance of many long-missing and well-loved characters from sixties and seventies British comics, and promises to be one of the most interesting comics to be seen in quite some time. The art is by Shane Oakley and George Freeman, with covers by Dave Gibbons, and is being co-written by Leah Moore and John Reppion, with plotting by Leah?s father, Alan Moore.
As well as all this, Leah does a little illustration, having provided the original design for the cover of the Builth Balkan Crew CD, as well as providing illustrations to accompany some of her husband?s articles. She is also the pubic hair continuity advisor for Alan Moore and Melinda Gebbie?s Lost Girls, and provided articles for two books published in 2003 to mark the 50th birthday of her father.
